Surrounded by thick woods and a lake teeming with life, Elm Haven Resort is within driving distance of two state parks. During your stay enjoy nature from a bike or your own two feet. The resort is home to turtles that nest along Rush Lake's shoreline, a nesting pair of grebes and the haunting call of loons.


Take a trip to western Minnesota for a chance to relax with a fishing pole in hand. At Elm Haven Resort, you're just steps away from Rush Lake, where you can fish for a wide range of species including black crappie, bluegill, largemouth bass, northern pike and more. Rent a fishing boat or pontoon from the resort and pick up bait on-site before you head out!


Elm Haven Resort puts you steps away from the beautiful waters of Rush Lake. Fishing-enthusiasts will love the close proximity to get out and cast their line for bass, northern pike, and bluegill. And if that's not your calling, you can still experience the waters on a canoe trip or by simply swimming in the shallow ends!
